At the end of every date or time together he has followed up quickly… He quizzed me about the day asking when I’m free and what work I’m doing now. I really like this guy and i thought he really liked me, you know? But if he were as into you as he was acting, why would he risk turning you off? When a man tells you he’s been so busy, that’s the biggest RED FLAG. Let me help you with understanding men and explain what those words could mean: He could also be pulling away like so many men do when things are going well and it occurs to them that a relationship is starting.
He’s been attentive, making dates, really into me and then suddenly –a week before Valentine’s Day– he didn’t make time to see me. So I sent him a text advising him of my first day off in 4 weeks. I hate to break this to you, but “I’m so busy” is Man Speak or code to cover a bunch of circumstances.

Dating, as we once knew it, feels pretty much over. “Laid-back guy, who likes sports and craft beer, just looking for a girl to have fun with” — you and every other man, apparently. Are we now too afraid to approach interesting people in real life because we know we can just go back to the comparative “ease” of approaching people online?
I got endless matches, all right, but I also didn’t know which matches were worth my time. Are we now too afraid to approach interesting people in real life because we know we can just go back to the comparative “ease” of approaching people online?
This way, if a man was only around for one, two or three dates, I had other contenders in line. Then you won’t be shocked when you find out you are not the only one.
The idea is to realize that dating is not the same as being in a relationship.
Somehow no matter how busy I am, I always find the time to eat and sleep because it's a human necessity. Or receiving a clear, unambiguous, stinging truth that will ultimately guide you to a more fulfilling partner?
